Platinum is the purest of all the precious metals used in jewellery, and was embraced by so many jewellers of the Art Deco period for its brilliant white colour and incredible strength and ability to be made into such fine work and detail and still be safe and secure enough to hold the diamonds. Art Deco jewellery set with onyx and diamonds is such a perfect combination and was often used in the 1920's and with these earrings, it is so easy to see why. Stock# ES7361 Circa: 1920 $19,500
